    Alllllllllllright..
    So I got my VFD and had my Lian Li and thought "mmh, using the usual faceplates of course sucks. Make yer own ffs!"

    And that's what I did, made my own faceplate for the VFD.
    Here you go (pictures are hosted on port 1027 so enable that port if necessary):

    Oh I forgot:

    This is not blooooo at all.
    The cam made it look bloo.
    But I will soon add the bloo filter and then make some "sunlight-shots".

    Hi,

    Thanks for your comments.
    I unfortunately do not know what you mean at all.
    Try to explain it a bit better, I'll of course try to help :D
